Fallout and Fallout 2 description

Childkiller is a reputation title in Fallout and Fallout 2.

ObtainingEdit

The player character receives this title by killing a child in game.

EffectsEdit

NotesEdit

  • It does not count if a companion kills a child instead of the player character.
  • Although the Childkiller title is given after killing one child in Fallout, three (two in Fallout 2) have to be killed before the people of the wasteland actually start regarding the character as a Childkiller.
  • In Fallout 2, there are a few kids who increase the child-kill count twice because of a script redundancy (and thus instantly makes the Chosen One a "real" Childkiller). These are Jonny in Modoc, the Slag kids and Curtis in Vault City.
  • Killing Myron in Fallout 2 counts towards becoming a Childkiller despite him not really being a child, but the game regards him as one.
  • Super stimpaks and planted explosives can be used to kill children without becoming a Childkiller.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • A new Vault Boy image for the Childkiller title was created for Fallout 2 but was never used.

This image was unused and the only Vault Boy image to ever be cut from Fallout 2. (I'm sure you can figure out why) I remember when I got the request to do a perk illustration for "Child Killer" that there would be no way to keep in from being offensive. I mean really! How do you make an illustration of "child killer" and keep it from being offensive? Anyway for some reason, I thought this was the least offensive way to do it. I have no idea what I was thinking. Even the designer who requested it realized it was a bad idea, so we fixed it. Looking back on it now, I can't believe I drew this.
